It is time for you to challenge the upper echelons of the Silver Codex. The Argent Hand awaits you in the Undercroft.
Omen believes it was the monks themselves which may have triggered Aurelian's collapse. She wants you to challenge some of the leaders of the Silver Codex, the Argent Hand, and learn what happened in their final hour.

We know that Aurelian collapsed in the Gloom during the Archon attack. You've experienced the final moments of the Archon Commander; he didn't do anything to trigger the collapse.
If the Archons weren't responsible, it must have been the monks. That resonance crystal holds traces of some of the leaders of the Silver Codex—it can take you to their final moments.
If these sages were responsible for the collapse, we may be able to use their techniques to control the Gloom and undo the damage it has done. So go now, and inquire of the dead.
Dalys! Dalys! Report, damn you!
We've lost the Codex Halls, Master Samar. And the Archons have entered the Undercroft.
Hold them! The Conflux Arc is almost ready. Just a little more time and we will smother them in shadows.
We'll do what we can. But you must work quickly!
How dare you? You are a fool to face us in our place of power, Archon!
We're being overrun, Samar! The Archons are approaching the Repository of Knowledge.
I will not allow this. We will destroy you, Archon, and all of your kind.
I will not allow the gifts of the Precursors to fall into the hands of these fools! You've failed me, brothers, but at least you served to prepare the Conflux Arc.
First Scribe? No. It's not ready! If you activate the Arc, it will destroy us all!
Absolute silence. This must be when the monastery collapsed into the Gloom.
The mystery deepens. The sages were preparing a final defense, but they didn't destroy Aurelian. That must have been the First... and she spoke of the Precursors.
I've heard her voice somewhere before.
There was something about her... No. If the First triggered the collapse, surely she died with the rest of the Silver Codex.
But this—this Conflux Arc could be the key. This is how they triggered the Gloom collapse. It's ruined, but it's possible Lord Halar can learn something from it.
Ah, our stalwart champion! Yes, Omen told me what you have found. Dire news to be certain.
Yet with this storm comes a lining of brilliant silver, no? We have here an opportunity to study what could be considered forbidden knowledge.
Leave this with me, Wayfinder, and I will find out what I can. Though, learning anything of merit may take me some time. For now, I would return to Omen. I am sure she has need of you.
Consider what we've seen. Aurelian, collapsed and lost. Skylight, attacked. Our world thrown into the Gloom. And through it all, one common thread: the Precursors.
Who are the Precursors?
Monsters from our myths. The Precursors. Those Who Came Before. The ancient enemies of the Arcs who opposed creation and were cast into the formless void.
I formed the Seekers to find the truth behind the legends. There was a world that came before ours. There are ruins and relics that weren't built by human hands... the work of the Precursors.
And now it seems... thirty years ago the Codex was working with the Precursors, and Aurelian was pulled into shadow. And one year ago, a monster attacked Skylight and unleashed the Gloom.
I destroyed the Precursor that attacked Skylight. Are there others still out there? Was unleashing the Gloom the extent of their scheme, or is there worse to come?
We need to know more. The First said she was hoarding the gifts of the Precursors in her Repository of Knowledge. It's time to seize those secrets.
